Boardman Rural Fire Protection District provides a full range of services which include fire prevention, public education, fire suppression, rescue, wild land fire control and initial hazardous materials response, committed to meet the fire safety needs of our community in a professional, safe, efficient, and effective manner. The vision of the Boardman Rural Fire Protection District is to create citizen satisfaction through quality service, valuing our volunteers as our best asset in meeting the public’s needs, and exercising sound stewardship of our resources.
Are you passionate about what we're doing? Let us know! We are always looking for volunteers to help make our community safer and better place to live. We'll help you find a way to volunteer that best suits you. We're excited to have you join our family!
Whether you help through volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
Boardman Rural Fire Protection District would like to remind you that this Sunday, March 8th, marks the beginning of Daylight Savings Time, While modern technology has made it such that we do not need to turn forward every clock in the house Saturday night, you should change the batteries in your smoke or carbon monoxide detectors. If you do not have smoke or carbon monoxide detectors, GET ONE!
Boardman Rural Fire Protection District recommends you change the batteries in your smoke or carbon monoxide detectors when you change the clocks during "Daylight Savings Time", to ensure they get changed at least twice a year. The death rate per 1,000 reported home fires was more than twice as high in homes that did not have any working smoke alarms (12.3 deaths per 1,000 fires), either because no smoke alarm was present or an alarm was present but did not operate. In homes with working smoke alarms fire related deaths dropped to 5.7 per 1,000 fires. Additionally, more than 72,000 carbon monoxide incidents were reported in 2019. Smoke and carbon monoxide alarms are a life saving devices, and having a working smoke or carbon monoxide alarm dramatically increases your chance of survival from a fire or carbon monoxide emergency.
Although it seems like a hassle, it's better to get into the practice of changing your smoke/co detector batteries when you change your clocks, than to wait until the telltale beeping of a dying battery at 2 o'clock in the morning, which many times ends up in the removal of the battery or the detector all together, thus rendering the detector useless.
Fires & carbon monoxide emergencies are real and very scary. A working smoke detector works around the clock and alerts you and your loved ones to a fire or carbon monoxide emergency even while you are asleep, When the alarm sounds you should "Get Out & Stay Out", then call "911"!
Help us, help you! Check your smoke detectors once a month, and when you "Change your clocks, Change your Batteries"!
If you need batteries, help replacing batteries or installing smoke detectors call Boardman Rural Fire District at 541-481-3473. We will provide batteries and smoke detectors for free to homeowners! If you need help installing your batteries or smoke detectors we will come to your home and install them for free!
Boardman Rural Fire Protection District is here to serve the communities of Boardman and surrounding area with honor, trust, duty and integrity.
